Hi, friends! This week, it’s time to get up to speed with Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s!

“Let’s rev it up!”

~~~~~ ORIGIN ~~~~~
YGO 5D’s was the 3rd major series in the YGO anime and the 1st to feature a new type of card called the “Synchro” Monster. While fusing two or more Monsters was a YGO mechanic from day 1, 5D’s set a precedent by expanding the “Fusion Deck” into a broader “Extra Deck” that would ultimately add new card types (1 for each new anime) every 3 years for the next decade!

The 5D’s story itself was surprisingly mature. The 1st arc spotlights the class conflict between the privileged citizens of “New Domino City” and the poor trapped in “The Satellite.” Our hero Yusei Fudo resides in the latter and is an expert mechanic and all-around resourceful individual who uses his talents to best corrupt cops, help his friends, and improve his Duel Runner (motorcycle) for Turbo Duels! But when one of his best friends/fellow Satellite denizen takes his best card and becomes a big shot in New Domino City, it’s time for Yusei to break into the city…

~~~~~ FIGURE REVIEW ~~~~~
Yusei is a 1/7 scale figure by Amakuni. It features the Duelist with a classic fierce expression, and he’s wielding a more standard Duel Disk for ground duels.

It simply wouldn’t be YGO without crazy multi-tone hair, and they’ve certainly done a great job capturing that here! Not only are the colors bold, but the sculpt throughout the figure features plenty of folds and textures that help catch light to contrast the shaded gradients. I especially like the use of a variety of special paint types, such as the metallic Duel Disk, glossy knee and shoulder pads, and even the gleaming gold mark on his face!

The base is very simple - a dark, yet translucent navy blue circle that features the Japanese logo. I actually love its simplicity. It’s basically flat on both top and bottom, making it much easier to place the rather wide base onto many kinds of risers.

~~~~~ PERSONAL COMMENTS ~~~~~
I’ve mentioned how I’ve been a lifelong YGO fan, and 5D’s holds a special place in my heart for revitalizing my love for the series during a dip in interest. It got me learning about the competitive landscape and would eventually lead me to start a Yugi-Tube channel in college to share my experiences, which I cherish to this day.

Admittedly, YGO is an ever-evolving game, and it’s wildly different in flavor today vs even a few years ago with the debut of the 6th series. That said, I do believe 5D’s is a fantastic anime even if you’re not familiar with the game, and who knows - card games on motorcycles might just introduce you to this vast world!

That’s all for now! Thanks for reading my Figure Mini-Review! I’d love to hear what you think! ^_^

That sounds kinda fun haha I miss the days of just turning on the TV and stumbling into something. It’s just not quite the same with streaming!

fantasy_trance12 dager siden#97943677This is so cool. I don't competitively pay YGO yet, but when I watched 5Ds for the first time 5 years ago, it really got me interested in the hobby. Yusei is my favorite YGO protag and I hope they make Jack Atlas.
This is such a high quality figure and a great review. Thank you <3


Thank you for your comment! Yeah, 5D’s is an especially exciting one among the YGO series, and it would be awesome if we got the Master of Faster himself!

setokaibaswife12 dager siden#97932791Amazing review, he looks great! I kinda regret not pre-ordering him but I was really on the fence about it at the time. If they make Akiza though I'll definitely get her.

Haha thanks! They really should make Akiza! I’m sure she would look stunning! (*^▽^*)

Whipping up a weekly Figure Mini-Review gives me a chance to appreciate the little details of my figures and gush about them to the world!

They're usually published mid-to-late-week ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
